Eating for oral health - the basics
You may very well be wondering… what does nutrition have to do with oral health? I can start by telling you it is more than just sugar...
As a periodontist, I went to 3 extra years of training after dental school to specialize in treating periodintitis, a condition affecting the bone and gums around teeth. I learned so much about disease and surgery, but suprisingly little about nutrition and health, and how best to support your body as you recover from surgery. Due to my own personal journey through IBS and major back surgeries, I have since become slightly obsessed about these topics, listening to literally thousands hours of health podcasts, going to health conferences, and reading many books on the topic. I have found that many of my patients are also starving for this information, but don't know where to start. I hope this can be the place!
